“Water consumption is a must! Every day, when I wake up in the morning, I have to drink 600 ml of water. After that, I clean my face with SamKim Cleansing Foam, and continue with SamKim Fresh Toner, Sun Protection and BB Cream. Then I use SamKim Eye Cream on my eyes and on my neck, it’s really great to keep the skin around our necks to stay flawless! Then I top it all with Loose Powder and I’m good to go. During the day, I try to stay hydrated with water. At night, before cleaning my face with Cleansing Foam, I pre-wash it first with Cleansing Oil. Then I apply Essence, Eye Cream and Super Cream, and I’m ready to go to bed. Once a week, I use Facial Mask, that’s all. Not too complicated, right?” she smiles.
